The LightsThe Dufferin Islands
Dufferin Islands features over fifty trees beautifully wrapped in lights.
Dufferin Islands is home to the Festival’s Canadian Wildlife displays including three-dimensional Moose, Deer, Polar Bears, Fox, Bison and Geese. These displays range in height from 4’ to 11’ tall. This winter don’t miss our newest addition to Dufferin Islands- a gigantic Woolly Mammoth as you exit this area!
There are also two-dimensional displays set up across the ponds including an Inukshuk, Kissing Swans, Bears climbing a tree and Wolves howling at the moon.
The Sylma is a 20’ tall x 35’ diameter magnificent tower of cascading lights, a fountain on the Dufferin Islands pond that is illuminated and sprays water 25′ in the air in addition to illuminating the bridge at the exit of Dufferin Islands!
As you exit Dufferin Islands, take a second to admire our newly improved Gingerbread House and say hi to our WFOL Ambassadors who greet visitors passing through!
There is no fee to view the illuminations but donations are gratefully accepted by our Festival Ambassadors at the exit of Dufferin Islands (suggested contribution $5 – $10 per car; bus groups $1/person), with proceeds used to enhance the Festival’s lights and displays.
